Princess Karena is all that stands between the House of Penmere and ruin. The King, her brother, was gravely wounded in a failed assassination attempt, and once-loyal followers are flocking to the treacherous Usurper's golden embrace.
But Karena knows the surest defence is attack, and will stop at nothing to destroy any rival to her brother... or herself.
Against her, the Usurper musters a vast army to crush Penmere once and for all, but in a war of treachery those closest to you can be the greatest threat.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
The world of Kingdom Asunder is svelte thoroughly enough to include several distinct cultures (and species) within a single storyline. The way that the characters react to the environment only increased my ability to fully immerse myself in the world created. The characters are developed enough to give a basic understanding of them and it's often very easy to identify with the characters, even the wicked ones. i had no trouble whatsoever visualizing interactions between characters and understanding why they behave as they do. However, I also enjoy that Karena is a bit of a wildcard and I can't wait to see what she does next. The story itself is brilliantly entertaining. There's a lot going on at once, but the information is organized in a way that makes it relatively easy to follow. It did sort of remind me of the A Song of Ice and Fire Series but without the incest (thank goodness). I was actually a bit upset when I finished it because I didn't realize I was so close to the end. I really enjoyed this book and can't wait to read the next volume in the trilogy. I received a digital copy of this book from the author in exchange for this honest review. For this review and more, please visit my blog at vicariousbookworm.wordpress.com
